About Us Marriott history Entertainment Sister Careers

Six worlds. One destination.

Paying homage to Grand Rapids’ Sister Cities of Omihachiman, Japan; Zapopan, Mexico; Ga district in Ghana; Perugia, Italy; and Bielsko Biala, Poland, the JW has on display photographs that capture the essence of each city’s culture.

Commissioned by the JW, photographer Dan Watts spent weeks photographing in each city. Months of planning and thousands of images later, the JW is home to a truly remarkable and insightful collection. Select photographs are on permanent display in both the public and private areas of the hotel, allowing guests to share the rich cultures of Grand Rapids’ Sister Cities while enjoying the JW’s own charms.

You can find out more on Grand Rapids Sister Cities by visiting the City of Grand Rapids website.
